Did you see him?

Kaylen Nance had a Shaq Attack when she saw Shaquille O'Neal July 8 at the Archdale Sheetz. At  7'1 he dwarfed Kaylen, 8, but was nice enough to come down to her level for a photo.

“He was very nice to her, cutting up and carrying on while my husband admired his all-time favorite NBA player!!” said mom Sherry Nance.

When the star's visit caused quite a stir, Sheetz Assistant Manager Isaac Gouldsby had to rush outside to shake the Shaq's hand as well.

“He is a large man!” said Gouldsby, who is 6’ tall himself. “I watch Shaq and have a lot of respect for him.”

Although he is best known for his NBA basketball career, O'Neal has released four rap albums, appeared in numerous films and has starred in his own reality television programs.

His visit caused quite a stir in Archdale with Sheetz Facebook page lighting up with comments across the country, but we’ve narrowed it down to a few local comments:
